Adams E3 Custom Euphonium


Item Details

This is a custom E3 euphonium made in The Netherlands by Adams Music.  It is different from the standard E3 Select model in having a tuning trigger on the main slide.  You can tune any note no matter the fingering.

The E3 euphonium is the latest model to be added to the Adams euphonium range. The instrument has 4 compensated valves and a 305 mm diameter bell. It has a different lead pipe, bell flare, bracing and bows compared to the E1 euphonium. Ideal for brass band players who are looking for a darker sound and great core stability. 

Adjustable Receiver

You can fine-tune the fit of any mouthpiece to find the sweet spot.  I noticed it as I tested the horn pictured above.  Especially the low G 1-2, you can dial that in to be centered, or if mis-adjusted, it's sort of foggy.

My favorite mouthpiece I tried on this Adams E3 is the Robert Tucci 6C.  Others nearly as good:  Wick 4AL, Tucci 7C, Ferguson 2, Faxx 51D. - Steve Ferguson
